Congrats to the guys in Big Time Rush! Their summery clip for ‘Windows Down’ took home the 2012 PopCrush Music Award for Video of the Year! And this is no small feat. The race to have 2012′s best video was close. The guys and their dedicated Rushers beat Justin Bieber‘s ‘As Long As You Love Me’ and One Direction‘s ‘Live While We’re Young’ videos with 28.4% of the vote. The race was very tight with One Direction and their Directioners coming in second with 26.4% of the vote and Justin and his Beliebers garnering 26.1% of the final tally.
‘Windows Down,’ which samples Blur‘s ‘Song 2,’ lends itself to the fun-in-the-sun atmosphere of the video. Logan Henderson told US Weekly, “We shot the video in Maui and did everything from cliff diving to paddle boarding to a house party with the locals. Our fans will get a chance to see a more mature and playful side of BTR.” Mature, indeed! The gentlemen are lookin’ mighty fine in this video so it’s no wonder they won this category.
Congrats again to James, Carlos, Logan and Kendall!
